This week on WDD’s HotSpot, Casetop from Livi Design is a netbook-like combo that uses a smartphone for its computing power; the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign has created new microbatteries, sought to achieve a more favorable balance between energy and density; and SM Instrument Company and the Korea Advanced Institute of Science and Technology have created a sound camera, the SeeSV-S205.
A new joint innovation by the National Physical Laboratory (NPL) and the University of Cambridge could pave the way for redefining the ampere in terms of fundamental constants of physics. The world's first graphene single-electron pump (SEP), described in a paper in Nature Nanotechnology, provides the speed of electron flow needed to create a new standard for electrical current based on electron charge.
The electrodes, called anodes and cathodes, are the building blocks of powerful battery arrays like those used in electric and hybrid vehicles. They are copper on one side and coated with a black compound to store lithium on the other. Lithium ions travel from the anode to the cathode while the battery is being charged and in the reverse direction when discharging energy.
Today on Engineering Newswire, brought to you by Pivot Point, the leading designer and manufacturer of non-threaded fastener solutions, we're improving Artificial Intelligence with sensors, flying robotic bees, making hypersonic history, and getting ready to launch GOES-R.
AutomationDirect’s has expanded its ultrasonic sensor line to include additional 18 and 30 mm round plastic DC models that are available with discrete or analog outputs. The sensors feature LED status indicators and a push-button teach feature for configuration of normally-open and normally-closed states for DC output models and for adjustable sensitivity on analog output models.

In a joint project between the Universities of Strathclyde and Glasgow, Imperial College London and the National Physical Laboratory, researchers have developed a portable way to produce ultracold atoms for quantum technology and quantum information processing.
Just 5.2 to 6.2 mm wide, WAGO Corporation’s TOPJOBS Double-Deck Fuse and Disconnect Terminal Blocks are up to 24% more compact than existing designs on the market. Space-efficiency is achieved by carrying fusing or disconnect capabilities on the top deck...
The CMX972 Quadrature Modulator/Demodulator is the latest RF building block from CML Microcircuits, following on from the popular CMX970, CMX971, and CMX973 devices. The new device features a low-power IF/RF Quadrature Demodulator with PLL/VCO; and a wide operating frequency range.
Three-dimensional magnetic vortices were discovered by scientists from the Helmholtz-Zentrum Dresden-Rossendorf (HZDR) together with colleagues from the Paul Scherrer Institute (PSI) within the scope of an international cooperation.
Signs are growing that the sustained surge in cyberattacks emanating from China is imperiling its relations with the U.S., lending urgency to fledgling efforts by both governments to engage on the issue. The Pentagon this week said China appeared to be cyberspying against the U.S. government, the first time it has made such an assertion in its annual report on Chinese military power.
AVX Corporation has extended its line of high-reliability board-to-board compression connectors for commercial, medical, and harsh industrial applications with the addition of an ultra-low-profile power connector.

Advanced Power Electronics has announced the APE2902, a high-efficiency VFM Step-up DC-DC converter for small, low-input voltage or battery powered systems with ultra-low quiescent supply current. Devices can operate from a positive input voltage between the start-up voltage and VOUT and convert it to a higher output voltage.
A robot can struggle to discover objects in its surroundings when it relies on computer vision alone. But by taking advantage of all of the information available to it — an object's location, size, shape and even whether it can be lifted — a robot can continually discover and refine its understanding of objects, say researchers at Carnegie Mellon University's Robotics Institute.
Researchers from the U.S. Department of Energy’s (DOE) SLAC National Accelerator Laboratory and Stanford University have designed a low-cost, long-life battery that could enable solar and wind energy to become major suppliers to the electrical grid."For solar and wind power to be used in a significant way, we need a battery made of economical materials that are easy to scale and still efficient," said Yi Cui...
